Dean 2004 Meetups Today
Today at 7pm, remember to attend your local Dean2004 meetup
. There's one in Northampton at JavaNet on Main Street. We're expecting Aaron Holmes, Regional Coordinator from Burlington, to be there and answer questions.
Be sure to exchange e-mails and phone numbers. Meetup is a good way to make sure you meet once a month, but there is a lot to do between meetings. Decide on an activity to organize around each month (April 26--the anniversary of the signing of Civil Unions is a good one this month), and focus group actions around it.
Also, remember your part in the overall campaign. If you are in or close to Iowa, New Hampshire or South Carolina, plan to go there for visibility events. If you are in an area with a large Democratic population (California, NY, DC), try to plan fund-raising events and raise awareness to drive the national poll numbers. Also, remember that you are trying to build the base in your local meetup--when the primaries come, these groups will be called upon for all kinds of activities--get organized and get to know each other now.
